What Does This Mean?

Listed for 500K and they sell for 510K. The market is insane right now! There is a bubble due to Covid that is based on emotions however that bubble will pop.

  1. The overbidding of 100K on homes is not on first-time homes but rather homes in the range of $500K-$700K!
  2. The overbidding is not on just average homes/outdated homes but rather on homes that have been remolded! Put in 20-30K and you may be able to get +$40K on your home.
  3. This is not just in the Denver market… this is a nationwide market.

  • Sellers – Sell NOW! Reach out you could lose $80K if you do not list right now!
  • Investors – The rates are still low and some deals still out there. Reach out but be patient.
  • Buyers – Do not rush; be patient and be cautious.
